Moskaluke's debut single, "Catch Me If You Can", was released on June 4, 2012. The song's music video received regular airplay on CMT. It was followed by an EP, also titled Catch Me If You Can, which was released on September 4, 2012 by MDM Recordings and distributed by EMI Music Canada. Jeff DeDekker of the Leader-Post gave the EP four stars out of five, writing that "by using the full extent of her voice and also incorporating tenderness and fragility, Moskaluke is able to cover the complete spectrum of material." Casadie Pederson of Top Country also gave the EP four stars out of five, calling Moskaluke "one of the best young talents we’ve seen in a long time." The EP's second single, "Hit N Run", reached the top 40 on the Billboard Canada Country chart in 2013.
